Breakfast: leftovers. Cut my hair, showered. Rode UberX to the Castro with Patrick. Dinner at Lark with Patrick: garides small plate to share (prawns, brussel sprouts, artichokes, olives, fresh tomatoes and white wine lemon butter caper sauce, $15), rib eye (our receipt said brizola steak) with kurdish bulgur and vegetables for Patrick ($36), roasted boneless half chicken (our receipt said kotopoulo) which wasn't boneless with kurdish bulgur and vegetables for me ($24), one glass of rivale sangiovese each ($14 each). I enjoyed the food and service, but at $132 after a $20 tip it seems that there are much better values in the neighborhood. Patrick decided that he did not need to return. Afterwards we checked out bars on 18th from Moby Dick to The Edge to see which was most happening. Midnight Sun and The Edge were the liveliest probably because both of these bars were showing the Golden Globe Awards on television. We decided on Midnight Sun and stayed until a little after the end of the show. Rode UberX home. Completed emptying the mule chest of my stuff in preparation for giving Patrick half of it.
